I took some pictures of this painting which was made in 1962. The title translates "As in a Mirror."
I'm not normally a huge fan of Hofmann, but I've always loved this picture. I figured after Johns' White Flag and those marble sculptures of Daniel Chester French we could use some color.
Hofmann painted this in his studio down on 8th Street in Greenwich Village, the same one that Jimi Hendrix would later use as a recording studio.
This painting is full of little delightful and unexpected surprises, and is worth looking at closely.
